GOD'S GLORY IN HIS WORKS AND WORD




The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord,
In every star Thy wisdom shines
But when our eyes behold Thy Word,
We read Thy Name in fairer lines.


The rolling sun, the changing light,
And nights and days, Thy power confess
But the blest volume Thou hast writ
Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.


Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise
Round the whole earth, and never stand:
So when Thy truth begun its race,
It touched and glanced on every land.


Nor shall Thy spreading Gospel rest
Till through the world Thy truth has run,
Till Christ has all the nations blest
That see the light or feel the sun.


Great Sun of Righteousness, arise,
Bless the dark world with heavenly light;
Thy Gospel makes the simple wise,
Thy laws are pure, Thy judgements right.


Thy noblest wonders here we view
In souls renewed and sins forgiven;
Lord, cleanse my sins, my soul renew,
And make Thy Word my guide to heaven.


---Alternative verses---


Let not Thy spreading Gospel rest
Till through the world Thy truth has run,
Till Thout hast all the nations blest
That see the light or feel the sun.


Thy noblest wonders here we view
In souls renewed and sins forgiven;
Lord, now the dead in sins, renew,
And make Thy Word their guide to heaven.


The rolling sun, the changing light,
And nights and days, Thy power confess
But that blest volume Thou hast writ
Reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.


Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise
Round all the earth, and never stand:
So when Thy truth begun its race,
It touched and glanced on every land.


Nor shall Thy spreading Gospel rest
Till through the world Thy truth has run,
Till Christ has all the nations blest
which see the light or feel the sun.
